This is our second time at Lord Bennett's, the first time was a little over two years ago. One thing I particularly noticed this time is the attention they pay to the side dishes. We both had salads with our meals, and these were among the most thought out "side salads" we've had in some time. Lots of ingredients, not just iceberg lettuce! My wife had the Wild Prawns (conventional, cooked in butter) while I had the Broiled Wild Prawns. In both cases they were the largest prawns I've seen is some time. Cooked perfectly in both cases. Mine had a green curry cashew sauce which I've never seen before, but frankly I didn't feel complemented the prawns very well. As in our last trip the vegetables on the side were varied and good -- fresh corn, green beans in cream sauce, and grilled mixed vegetables and mushrooms.
The service was good, but not great. The waitresses were chatting loudly in the dining room at the start of our meal (there were few customers at 5PM on a Monday).
Deserts are good here but we are dieting and didn't have any.
